2015 is here, and we've hit the ground running!
We're shipping from both the Bensenville IL and Salt Lake City UT warehouses, so customers nationwide can take advantage of UPS Ground shipping.
Our new catalog is in production and will go to press soon. If you don't have a RAECO Rents catalog, or the one you have is old, make sure you request a copy of the new one. It has more information than ever, with an updated list of available rental kits.

TSI Improves Fit Test Speed with Upgraded FitPlus Software
TSI is always looking for ways to help make annual respirator fit testing easier and more efficient. From step-by-step on-screen instructions to touch-screen system management, you're able to perform OSHA-required fit testing without certification or undergoing hours and hours of operator training. And now, two major changes to FitPro software let you do even more!
With the new FitPro+, you can now connect up to four PortaCount Pro (models 8030
or 8038) units to a USB hub, and then to your PC. So, one administrator can test four employees at once. Plus, all the data feeds into a single Microsoft Access database, so you don't have four different sets of data to manage, making your record-keeping and reporting tasks even easier.
All TSI PortaCount Pro and Pro+ rental kits include the latest version of FitPro software. Want to install it early
and familiarize yourself with the program? You can download it free from our website.
Does your IT department's security policy make it difficult to install software on a corporate PC? Rent a laptop pre-loaded with the software you need. ($35/day, $105/week)
Special Requirements Are Our Specialty
Recently, a customer called with a special request. He needed a perimeter monitoring system (TSI DustTrak in an outdoor enclosure), but he wanted some sort of local visual indication so workers could see at a distance that an exposure level had been reached. Normally, our outdoor kits don't have this type of alarm, but our technical team was able to mount a strobe light to the enclosure, wire it to the DustTrak's alarm output, and provide power through the battery.
Other customers have requested special power supplies for their projects: gel-cell lead-acid batteries for use in severe service applications, longer-life batteries for extended surveys, and solar power kits for use in remote areas where standard power supplies aren't readily available. Your rental instrument is only helpful if its power lasts as long as you need it, and can work in your application environment. That's why your RAECO Rents rental specialist will ask about the length of your study or for specific application details.
Over the last couple years, we've also been including Netronix Thaimis cellular communications to help customers view their field data on a cell phone, tablet, or PC, and we've build combined systems, like dust monitoring, VOC detection, and area noise monitoring, to reduce the number of devices and kits you need to rent or manage on the job.
So when you need a specialized system or a rental unit slightly "out of the box", don't hesitate to ask. We're here to help.
